The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change recently reported that the global community has just 12 years to limit global warming to under 1.5 degrees, beyond which climate disasters will be magnified. Governments everywhere need to rapidly reduce fossil fuel use — and it's up to all of us to apply the pressure necessary for cities, states and nations to take action.

Join us to learn more about how to advance divestment for your city and state pension and union funds. RSVP and you will receive a Zoom link a few days before the webinar.

Nearly 1000 institutions, with a combined asset value of over $7.1 trillion  have committed to divest in some form from fossil fuels. This includes some of the world’s largest and most influential cities such as New York City, London, Washington DC, Paris, and Berlin. With fossil fuel stocks becoming increasingly financially risky, funds are divesting while continuing to meet their fiduciary responsibilities to their pensioners and retirees. Many are investing billions in climate solutions that will accelerate the just transition to a better future.

Sign up now to learn more about how to bring divestment efforts to your city or state.
